Filenames exported from Mono.Unix and Mono.Unix.Native may be in a
special UnixEncoding format so that arbitrary filenames may be accessed
(i.e. filenames outside of UTF-8 or the MONO_EXTERNAL_ENCODINGS value).
See also:

The Mono.Unix namespace is being reorganized for easier maintenance,
easier documentation, and CLS compliance.  The low-level Syscall and
Stdlib and related types will move into the Mono.Unix.Native namespace.
The UnixConvert, UnixDirectory, UnixFile, UnixGroup, and UnixUser
classes are obsolete and will be removed in a future release.  The types
of existing members will change in the next release.

This release is still 100% compatible with previous releases.  Impacted
members have been marked [Obsolete] with messages to indicate the
replacement method.  The next release will be an API break (changing the
return type of effected properties & methods), and obsolete types will
be removed in the following release.

Mono.Unix is targeting API stability for 1.2.  If you have any
suggestions for improvement, I would love to hear them.
